Not that I'm above it, but sometimes I have to beg (okay maybe not beg, but publicly request) local theaters to show the fashion-related documentaries me and mine are dying to see. I was fully prepared to prostrate myself thusly for Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel, which chronicles the incredible career of the Harpers Bazaar editor (still the best option among the supermarket fashion rags, in my opinion). But what do you know, I didn't even have to. There's a DVD copy of it burning a hole in my work bag right now, and I already know I'm going to want to watch it more than once; the imagery alone, as evidenced in the trailer, pre-justifies it:
I die. So chaaaahming. Opens at the Fox Tower on Oct 19!
